“Children of the Covenant: How a Deeper Understanding of Judaism Enriches Christian Faith”

Led by Dr. David Jensen, Austin Seminary

Explore how Judaism marks stages in the life-cycle (coming of age and death) as people of faith. A deeper exploration of these traditions enriches both our understanding of our Jewish sisters and brothers
and the ways in which Christians mark these same important events.

  • October 31 we will cover the topic, “ Coming of Age in Judaism,” looking at the theology and practice of Bar/Bat Mitzvah in Judaism.

  • November 7 will be devoted to “Death and Dying in Judaism,” examining distinctive rituals surrounding death and mourning in Judaism.
